FO- First Attempt At Color Work
OK, I know this is one ugly hat, but it was just a practice piece to try out stranding. No pattern, just some random shapes and patterns I made up as I went along just to get the hang of stranding.

That's how I learned, too. It looks great and isn't ugly at all!

I think it looks great! I am working on my first colorwork right now too (stranded though not intarsia). I bet intarsia is much trickier.

Thanks, it's actually stranding, I gave up on the intarsia out of frustration.
